This is a good team and I cry because it's over but can't wait for Spring Training.
I agree with this. I will actually root for the Phillies, particurally in the World Series.
As for the Reds, the pitching was good, and I think the Reds will get better. Rolen and OCab will be moving on, maybe not in 2011, but soon enough. Janish and Francisco will get their turns.
This experience will build the Reds up in the long run, like the 2007 sweep of the Phils did for them.
Thanks for an unexpectedly good 2010 season Reds!
